Tower Hamlets Liberal Democrats were shocked to learn that Blackwall and Cubitt Town councillor Chris Chapman and his partner Jonathon Carter had been the victims of homophobic abuse twice last week, while out on public transport.
This isn’t a party political matter – this sort of abuse is just wrong.
It’s the twenty-first century and London is one of the most liberal cities in the World. Of course couples, whatever their gender, should be able to feel safe to have a kiss.
We hope Mr Chapman and Mr Carter quickly get over this, and have a very Merry Christmas.
